On our way!

We're sitting in the Miami airport waiting for our flight to Manaus.  We had quite a shock at SFO, where we learned that our flight had been rescheduled to leave two hours earlier than we expected.  No one had ever notified us of this change.  Miraculously, though, there was a delayed direct flight to Miami that had twenty available seats!  We hopped over to that flight (no extra charges) and avoided a short hop through Charlotte that was in our original itinerary.  So far so weird but so far so good!

We won't be able to post daily from Brazil due to internet issues.  We will work to make it happen every three days if possible.  We look forward to our trip and to telling you all about it!  Please tune in to our blog posts, pictures and videos and leave comments for us if you can.  Huge thanks to Bryan Navarro, our California connection who will help us convert our files onto our web page.  Without him, we would likely struggle to post at all.


  1. Glad to hear that you are all off to a weird but good start! Wishing you safe travels and a wonderful experience like I had all the way back in 2010 (so long ago). Keep frantically listening to your Portuguese during the flights as it will greatly payoff when you get to Brazil! Those of us staying in the Bay cannot wait to hear all about it. Cheers to your life changing Jan Term adventure :)
